Right after getting a great chunk of integration ripped away from it, Google+ is nevertheless trucking along as a social network. Today, Google announced a redesign for the web site that focuses purely on the social aspects and moves the site from getting people-based to concentrate much more on “interests.”
The new style brings a splash of color and a lot more of Google’s Material Design aesthetic to the desktop website. The whole thing looks a lot a lot more like the mobile app. The header has changed from a boring gray to a bright red, and the mobile app’s floating circular button even makes an look as the new way to write a post. The “core” of the internet site looks pretty significantly the same—text and pictures inside a scrolling list of cards.
The mobile app gets a bit of sprucing up as well. Soon after experimenting with a bizarre drop-down navigation program, the mobile app finally goes back to the standard “hamburger” button, pulling it more in line with the rest of Google’s apps. The app can not aid but be a small crazy, though, as there is also now an iOS-style navigation bar on the bottom of the screen in each mobile apps.
